Last Saturday, the UFC returned to Cleveland Ohio with UFC 203. Packed to capacity with wild knockouts, slick submissions and back and forth wars, the card delivered as an unforgettable one for fans watching live in Cleveland and those tuning in on screens around the world.
UFC 203’s undercard was highlighted by Drew Dober’s mauling of Jason Gonzalez, Brad Tavares and Caio Magalhaes’ awesome middleweight war, and Bethe Correia’s razor-thin defeat of Cleveland’s Jessica Eye, which surely left the throngs of fans inside the Quicken Loans Arena disappointed. The main card highlights, meanwhile, included Mickey Gall’s domination of debuting pro wrestler CM Punk, and Fabricio Werdum and Travis Browne’s whacky heavyweight war.
And then, of course, there was the main event, which saw Cleveland’s own Stipe Miocic weather and early storm to shut the lights off on Alistair Overeem with a series of punches from full guard. With this fantastic win, Miocic remained the UFC heavyweight champion, and now sets his sights on his second defense – probably against Cain Velasquez or the aforementioned Werdum.
Thanks to the video above, which was posted to the UFC’s official YouTube channel on Tuesday, you can watch all the many hellacious impacts of UFC 203 in awesome slow motion.
